Hi cuties! I think that smoky eyes is my favorite makeup. Even though it is not a makeup for every day, I was using it all the time in my rebel youth. There are so many different tutorials for smokey makeup on internet but today I decided to share my own variation of classic smoky eyes look. Everything you will need to create this makeup is a simple black eye pencil, black eye shadow, white eyeshadow, neutral matte eye shadows (skin color or grey) and few basic brushes. I like my smoky eyes to be dramatic, but you can play with the intensity and change colors as you wish. Let’s begin! 

There are some important rules about the perfect smoky look:

1. Even skin tone without any imperfections;

2. Perfect eye brows;

3. Neutral colors for your lips;

4. Foundation goes after eye make up;

I don ‘t use eye shadow base for smoky eyes. This look is all about blending and base will make this process hard. So I primed my lids with facial powder.

1. The first step is to line your upper and lower lash line. The line should be thick and don’t worry if it be messy;

2. Smudge the pencil. Take a time to fill the spaces between your lashes;

3. Start to put black eyeshadow dabbing it on your eyelid;

4. Take a blending brush and put some grey matte eyeshadows to blend the black out;

5. Highlight your brow bone. After, go back to the blending brush and work out the transition again;

6. Finishing steps - put a generous coat of mascara and line the waterline with black eye pencil. Don’t forget about the brows:)

That's all for my smoky eyes, I hope this tutorial was useful for you. Please follow my blog and leave your opinion about this make up in the comments. I will talk to you very good, cuties, bye bye!

Lots of love,
Liz
